Indian got a target of 328 runs to chase in order to win the series-deciding game and visitors batters were expected to come up with impressive work on the final day at The Gabba. However, the day got off the mark for Team India with bad news as they lost their premium opener, Rohit Sharma. Nathan Lyon almost gave a second setback to the tourists as got the prized wicket of Cheteshwar Pujara. But, the umpire’s call played its part and Australia was left with nothing in their hands.

Indian opener Shubhman Gill and Rohit Sharma took the field from India on Day-5. The opening partnership was broken by Aussie pacer Pat Cummins. He gave a big blow to Team India as he dismissed in-form player Rohit Sharma. Australia might have got the feeling of winning the game as they got the premium wicket quite early. But a brilliant partnership between Pujara and Shubhamn turned the tables in Team India’s favor.

Nathan Lyon Almost Got Cheteshwar Pujara’s Wicket, Umpiring Once Again Under The Scanner

Meanwhile, Nathan Lyon almost got the prized wicket of Cheteshwar Pujara. But, the umpire’s call played the spoilsport. The Aussie spinner bowled a brilliant delivery that pitched outside off-stump and turned brilliantly towards the batsmen. On the other hand, the Indian batsman tried to defend that delivery on the front foot. But, he failed in getting the connection with the bat.

Lyon made an appeal but the umpire adjudged Pujara not out. The Aussie players went for a review and the third umpire. In the replay, it was very clear that the ball was hitting the stumps by a fine margin. But, Pujara was saved due to the umpire’s call. Also, the on-field umpire called it a no-shot.
